Alumni Relations

Dear Alumnus,

The Alumni Relations Team has so far had an exciting and busy 2016 – having interacted with many graduates via personal visits, emails, written and telephonic communication as well as through the various social media sites. The Durban Alumni Association AGM held on the Howard College campus, the Cape Town Alumnus Dinner at the Cellars Hohenort Hotel in Constantia, the Durban Alumnus Dinner at the Hilton Hotel, the Richards Bay Alumnus Lunch at the Protea Waterfront Hotel, the Film Screening/Movie Evening at Musgrave Centre in Durban took place and a number of other events will soon be taking place. Such events include the Pietermaritzburg Alumnus event, and visits to Swaziland, Mpumalanga, Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom are also on the agenda.

We are particularly happy about the successful launch of two new Facebook pages – specifically for alumni based in the United Kingdom and the USA. We plan to launch similar Facebook pages specifically for those alumni living in Canada, Australia and New Zealand in the near future.

Communication via the website, FacebookTwitter and SMS has increased and is an effective way of informing graduates of UKZN events and issues. In order to invite alumni to the planned events and to keep everyone updated on University events – we are eager to secure the current contact details of alumni – especially email addresses and mobile phone numbers. Also, please encourage any friends or relatives who are graduates and have not received any correspondence from the University in recent months to provide us with their updated contact details. This can be done via the website

With our very best wishes, 
The Alumni Relations Team.
